About Me 


Bio:

Alex is an American cinematographer and field producer focused on documentary and unscripted television, and is available for hire worldwide. He lives in Denver, Colorado.

Why Hire Me?

  • Adaptability: I can work as a one-man-band (self-shooting PD) managing sound, picture, and lighting, or I can build out a specialized crew for any given project.
  • Range: I bring to the table the ability to field produce and co-direct. Many of my assignments for news outlets involve only myself and a location producer, meaning that my responsibilities extend beyond just the camera.
  • Relationships: I have strong working relationships with producers, sound recordists, AC's, grips, composers, make up artists, rental houses, PA's, photographers, and other camera operators in the region that can be leveraged based on the needs of the project.

  • Experience: I've been shooting professionally for 12 years, and have worked everywhere from prisons to farms to the remote Arctic wilderness, and I bring with me a refined sense of artful storytelling and professionalism.
